Analysis

What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about D'ANDRE SWIFT before he made the Detroit Lions' Depth Chart: Georgia, 5082 212 4.46. Junior entry, two-year starter, Philadelphia, PA. Has been a part of a committee approach since the start of his career. Played behind Nick Chubb and Sony Michel as a freshman, then took over the leading rusher role the rest of the way. Was second-team All SEC in 2018, and first-team in 2019. An every-down back. His ability to make the first guy miss and make the spectacular catch will make the highlight reels, but his greatest value is how reliable he is play to play. Makes big plays and will provide the value by picking up the tough yards inside. A do-it-all back who can stay on the field in any situation. A dynamic runner in the open field that has both the open field burst and speed to run away from defenders, but also the shake and wiggle in traffic to make tacklers miss. A good decision maker. Will put his shoulder down and take what the defense gives him when needed. Excels when he bounces the play outside and puts a defender on an island, a battle he almost always wins. Possesses a lethal spin move. Will press the running lane and keep his feet moving as he decides what to do laterally. Stays square and balanced. Can lower himself to miss contact and take on a big hit. Excellent blocker and receiver. Reliable in any role. Won’t dart in and out of his breaks when coming from a standstill. Needs that extra step or two to really get going. Too many fumbles (7 in three years ). Needs better ball handling techniques. Had a shoulder issue in 2019. 2019 stats: 1218 yds, 6.2 ypc, 7 TD, 24 rec, 216 yds, 9.0 ypr, 1 TD. OSR:9/33. No shuttle-his choice. First/second round. (A-29 7/8, H- 9, BP-DNP, SS-DNP). Ohio State, 6011 205 4.46. Junior entry, two-year starter, Grand Prairie, TX. First-team All-Big 10 in 2019. Was outstanding as a sub package player before becoming a full-time starter in 2019. Physical corner with length. Has experience in a variety of coverage and technique. Plays press, off, and hard corner. Effective with a two and off hand jam along with press and react. Strong in press and bail. Mirrors cuts extremely well from different looks. Quick in transition with sudden foot movements changing directions. Recovers and closes with a burst. Solid ball skills getting his inside hand on balls at the catch point. Can undercut a route in the throwing lane to high point the ball. Stays in phase on vertical and extended route breaks. Has eye discipline to focus on the receiver and find the ball in phase. Solid zone defender with quick lateral shuffle in deep outside coverage. Maintains close cushion and has the ability to see multiple routes and react to the quarterback delivery. Can sink under an intermediate route as a hard corner and quickly break on the flat. Explosive plant and drive. Physical in run support. Can take on a stalk block and shed working to the ball. Runs through tackles with gather and finish. Occasionally will give up leverage versus a shifty receiver. Could be more fluid in pedal and reactions in off coverage. At time relies too much on recovery speed versus route breaks. Occasionally goes low on tackles and is vulnerable to a miss or yards after contact. Has the size, speed, and athletic ability of an elite corner. Any deficiency in his game can be cleaned up by an NFL coach. He still has upside and will be selected in the first round. 2019 stats: 35 T, 1 TFL, 9 PBU, 2 FF, 3 INT. OSR:4/29. First round. (A-32 5/8, H-8 1/2, VJ-41, SS-DNP). Ohio State, 6011 205 4.46.
